Hurricane Maria Discussion Number 42
NWS National Hurricane Center Miami FL AL152017
1100 AM EDT Tue Sep 26 2017
The satellite presentation of Maria has continued to slowly degrade
over the past 24 hours, as deep convection is now confined to the
southeastern portion of the circulation. Peak surface wind
estimates from the Stepped Frequency Microwave Radiometer on the
reconnaissance aircraft have been around 60 kt both overnight and
this morning, but due to sampling considerations for such a large
wind field the initial wind speed is held at 65 kt for this
advisory. Cool waters and moderate west-northwesterly shear are
expected to cause a gradual decrease in intensity over the next
couple of days, and Maria is forecast to weaken to a tropical storm
later today or tonight. Little change in strength is expected later
in the period while Maria accelerates east-northeastward and begins
to interact with a frontal boundary over the north Atlantic.
Maria continues to move slowly northward around the western side of
a subtropical ridge. A mid- to upper-level ridge over the
northeastern United States to the north of Maria is likely to
keep the cyclone's forward motion slow for the next 24-36 h. After
that time, a mid-latitude trough moving across the Great Lakes
region is expected to lift Maria east-northeastward or northeastward
at an increasing forward speed. The track guidance remains in good
agreement on the scenario but there continue to be large speed
differences after 48 hours. The new official forecast is a little
slower than the previous one at days 3-5 to be more in line with the
various consensus aids.
1. Maria is forecast to continue moving northward, paralleling the
U.S. east coast for the next 36 hours, and will likely bring some
direct impacts to portions of the North Carolina coast through
Wednesday where a tropical storm warning is in effect.
2. Storm surge flooding, especially along the sound side of the
North Carolina Outer Banks, is expected, and a storm surge warning
and watch are in effect for portions of eastern North Carolina.
3. Swells generated by Maria are affecting much of the east coast of
the United States. These swells are also affecting Bermuda, the
Turks and Caicos Islands, and the Bahamas. These swells are likely
to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions. Please

The APRSfl.net system receives data via the Emergency Managers
Weather Information Network EMWIN
system via satellite on GOES-13 and a Zephyrus WX14 next generation satellite receiver. We also utilize a
Unidata LDM powered
NOAAPORT CBand satellite system as
a source of data with a Novra S300 satellite receiver. We use Weather Message
(WxMesg) as our data processing software to take all this bulk data and
power this page and our e-mail & SMS warning alert system.
If you are interested in a internet based EMWIN warning system of your own,
you'll first need to download a EMWIN software package such as Real EMWIN, Weather
Message, or Interwarn and then connect to our public ByteBlaster server. The high
speed national feed via our downlink (19200bps) is available at emwin.aprsfl.net
on TCP port 2211 (** New Port - was 1000 **).
If you are a LDM user looking for our LDM product feed of the EMWIN
data stream from Satellite, just contact us with the IP address of your LDM server.
